“The Great Gatsby” Movie Trailer

“The Great Gatsby” is terribly near and dear to my heart. It’s quiet, repressed, and introspective nature was beautifully contrasted against the brassy Jazz Age. The trailer looks grand and as lavish as any other Baz Luhrman film, but I don’t know, I’m a little conflicted. The trailer is too fast and focused on the glamorous aspect of Gatsby’s life and is devoid of genuine emotion and complexity. But then again, it’s just a trailer and Baz Luhrman has never been interested in sticking to original source material anyways. But still, what was up with the music choice for the trailer? Talk about awkward.
